Olivia Palermo has revealed her love for edgy British style.

The former reality star said she thinks girls in the UK have an ‘awesome edge’ when it comes to fashion.

“When I think of British girls, I think of a great little skirt and leather jacket. British girls have such an awesome edge,” she told Closer magazine.

“I love the fact that everyone, especially in London, is so expressive through their clothes."

The former fashion PR admitted that when it comes to her own style, it’s blazers that she can’t get enough of. 

“I'm obsessed with blazers! I love tailored pieces and blazers are great - they can be worn with anything and instantly change an outfit. I always try to wear one structured piece,” she said.

Coming into spring, Olivia revealed what she’ll be adding to her wardrobe.

"I'm also into embellished pieces and gold and copper-toned metallics - although not everyone can pull those off,” she said.

But proving that it’s not just what’s on the outside that counts, the former star of the City said that underwear is just as important for her.

"Underwear is like clothing, you have to feel sexy and confident in it,” she said.

“I wear nude or black lace. I love Intimissimi's NERO collection - it taps into the trend."
